Our Governors are drawn from a wide range of professions and backgrounds and are invited to join the Council based on their skill set and commitment to the School. The Council is comprised of Foundation Governors and a Parent Governor.

Parent Governors serve a term of three years on the Council and some then become Foundation Governors. We welcome expressions of interest from our parent body and hold a list of potential governors for when relevant opportunities become available. The Governing Council is committed to the ethos and values of the School and works closely with the School's management team to fulfil the School's long term objectives.

Our Governing Council includes professionals and specialists in the fields of education, finance and health and safety.
